(PLUS OAKLEY the Pit Bull)
32 ECR Chi's started their journey from Albuquerque to Old Dominion Human Society in Fredericksburg, Virginia Friday morning, May 1.
Weeks of planning and coordinating by ECR volunteers Margaret Wiltse and Danielle Chavez, and many other volunteers in New Mexico and Virginia made this Transport possible.
Many places back East have adopters on waiting lists for small dogs and New Mexico euthanizes 200+ Chi's every week.
This Transport is our first attempt to level the playing field. Back East 15 lbs. is considered a very small dog.
The idea for a TRANSPORT started at a meeting between ECR's president and ODHS last summer, but a trip to California to pick up a lost Pit Bull, Oakley, that was microchipped to ODHS, made it a reality.
Christiene Blake and Rachel Gilbert of Old Dominion did all the driving, and made stops to water and exercise the dogs.
After picking up Oakley, and 7 small dogs from a kill shelter in Arizona, the transport van made it to ECR in ABQ to load up 32 Chi-mixes between 10 and 15 lbs. This is the weight hardest to adopt and most often euthanized in New Mexico.
Almost home, after 27 straight hours of straight through driving plus break time to exercise the dogs and drivers. A huge thanks to everyone involved for the hard, hard work of transporting 33 dogs from CA, AZ, and NM, to forever homes in Virginia. All dogs are in foster homes in Virginia until home visits can be made and approved.
